  1. The one plus to the lockout is that it has been an absolute treat to follow the Juniors teams this year. Mac Curruth has been a monster… it is just a shame that he is splitting time with Burke, even though he has been much better!

  2. Teuvo, putting up strong #’s after slow start and injury.

    I know Stalberg is no Prospect… but he is also putting up good #’s in Sweden.

  3. Vince Hinostroza, F, Waterloo (USHL)
    14 games, 11 goals, 9 assists, 20 points, +15, 4 PIM

    Huge numbers, and I have to admit I know very little about Vince…any info

  4. I too love to watch Carruth play…big guy that smothers the net, and plays with a lot of confidence…he could be a very good one…

    Teuvo has been red hot since his return…McNeil is on a real tear…Danault still hasn’t cooled down (playing against the best lines)…

  5. As for an update with Rockford, they are playing much better as a team…with some guys elevating their games and other plateauing…

    Kruger has been good, but he has 4 goals and 13 points in 20 games…he simply will not make a 2nd line centre…at least for awhile if not ever…Pirri has 6 goals and 14 points in 20 games with LOTS of good wingers to play with…Beach has scored 6 in 14 games and is playing physical hockey, so is Morin who has 8 goals in 20 games…LaLonde has been much better this year, he has 6 points and is a PLUS 4…Clendening has been outstanding with 3 goals and 13 points and is at 0…Smith, Hayes and Shaw have looked good, albeit with pedestrian numbers…Nick Leddy hasn’t been himself since the cheap shot he took, but looks to be coming around…Joe Lavin and Ryan Stanton have been steady, and Mr. Hall of Fame, Brandon Saad, is coming around after his injury…but Dylan Olsen is showing himself to be a minor league defenceman and not worthy of consideration for the big team…in 12 games he has no points and is a -2…

    Overall, the Icehogs have a nice team that will only get better as the season progresses…but one thing is clear, the Hawks are LUCKY that this season has been sidetracked, because it is clear that the YOUTH PARADE led forward by Bowman still isn’t ready…

    Again, Stan has done an admirable job drafting in his position, but has done an awful job at filling out an NHL roster that can win in the playoffs, which we have yet to do on his watch…so many of the guys mentioned are going to nicely fill out our 3rd and 4th lines…but what about the top 2 lines and D pairings as we move forward…and suddenly goaltending is an issue…

    Again, we are lucky that this season is what it is…

  6. i was thinking something similar brad. this season being cancelled gives the hawks time to heal hossa and montador. in addition it gives the youth movement time to develop. kind of a silver lining.

    i also fear that stan cant “put it together” in terms of building a winning roster. i knew tallon was the brains. damn it.

  7. Saad 8 in 10 (after first 3 games when hurt)
    Clendening that’s point per game for a defenseman (ahl rook)
    Jayes & Shaw still steady
    Smith coming on
    Mcneil consistent
    Teuvo is going to be good, 12 in 10 (after first 7 games)
    Danault is a player

    Looks Good for Future.

  8. Carruth is the truth,Been saying that.Much more guile then a certain netminder has anyday.Cannot wait to see him in the big show

  9. Kevin Hayes put together a mix bag this weekend vs. BU. -4 on friday, but 3 assists (all on the PP) and +1 on Saturday.
